Theo Walcott believes Cesc Fabregas could be unstoppable this season and says the Arsenal captain is a great player to learn from.

Fabregas assisted four and scored another of Arsenal's six goals against Blackburn Rovers on Sunday. After the match Walcott spoke highly of a "fantastic" player, saying that the Spanish international is unstoppable in that sort of form.

"If he plays like he did against Blackburn, nobody will be able to stop him this season," said Walcott. "He is fantastic to play with."

"He is still so young and he has a lot of pressure on his shoulders but he is a fantastic person to learn from."

The midfielder provided Walcott for Arsenal's fifth, which was also the Gunners 200th goal at Emirates Stadium, and the England international acknowledged Fabregas' contribution to the strike.

"He played the ball to me for my goal and I didn't have to break my stride. That's how good he is.

"It's difficult to play amazingly well throughout the whole season. He is only 22 but he has been around for a very long time. He is our captain and he is doing a great job."
